campaign. president obama and his republican challenger, mitt romney, both favor expanding charter schools, support standardized tests and want more accountability from teachers and principals. but the two men have significant disagreements. >> i think some of the main differences between governor romney and president obama when it comes to education come in the area of school choice. governor romney sees a really robust rule for school choice and school improvement whereas president obama like a lot of democrats has been skeptical of vouchers. >> reporter: romney supports taking federal dollars for educating special needs and low income families, known as title i funds and giving them directly to parents in the form of vouchers. although romney avoids using that word. >> for the first time in history federal education funds will be linked to the student so that parents can send their child to any public or charter school of their choice. >> reporter: the obama administration is staunchly opposed. why not expand vouchers? why not give parents more choices? >> the goal can't be to remove on

reaction coming in from the romney campaign. gloria borger is standing by on that front. both of these campaigns are bringing major surrogates to denver to appear in the so-called spin room after the debate tomorrow night. what are you learning about the romney campaign's people who are coming in? >> reporter: wolf, it's probably no surprise rob portman, mitt romney's chief sparring partner playing barack obama in the debate, he'll be in the spin room. but we've also learned that marco rubio, the rising star, senator from florida who had a prominent role at the republican convention, he will also be in the room. it's interesting to note this comes just as mitt romney's making some new gestures in some outreach, you could say, to the latino community. notable he will be there as well. >> very interesting. thanks very, very much, jim acosta in littleton, colorado. >>> all right. this just coming in to cnn. the results of our brand new poll among latinos all over the united states. certainly one of the country's fastest growing and increasingly important groups of voters. look at

in what they are trying to do. >> voter i.d., which is going to allow governor romney to win the state of pennsylvania, done. >> in both florida and colorado, searches by state republicans have found the number of illegal voters to be less than 1/10 of 1%. and that's what republican say it is, so it's actually probably lower than that. but the best case republicans can make is less than 1/10 of 1%. that's the best they can come up with. faced with that evidence, colorado's secretary of state says quote we have real vulnerabilities in the system. by vulnerabilities what they obviously mean are voters inclined to vote for president obama. republicans think that one easy way of targeting those voters is by aiming their voter suppression laws at black and latino voters who poll overwhelmingly in support of president obama. the most reliable republican voter is of course the white male voter. mitt romney leads president obama with white males 58 to 34 in the latest numbers from gallup. indeed if you listen to the romney campaign long enough, it sounds like it is targeted exclusively to whit

of both scott brown and elizabeth warren. the fact that he did not want to be associated very clearly did not want to be associated with mitt romney was interesting and definitely trying to put sun light between him and the obstructionist congress he is a part of. what did you make of it? >> absolutely. that's one of his keys to victory to try to get that crossover vote, folks who will vote for barack obama for president but do not want to send an all democratic ticket to washington. but when he's saying well, he said to mitch mcconnell he wasn't satisfied with the direction in which congress was going and would he vote for him, mitch mcconnell is the only republican on the ballot for senate majority leader so if you don't vote for him you're going to be excommunicated. he has to go with mitch mcconnell. i found that fascinating. the supreme court justice answer, scalia known to be a favorite amongst republicans, prime probably not going to do well with independent in the state of massachusetts. the most important number here is that amount of folks undecided in the state, 18%, and why is

. out on the campaign trail, both candidates are hitting the key battleground state of ohio today. they're hitting it hard. mitt romney's bus tour makes three stops while president obama makes two. after a new quinnipi ni peipiac shows president obama leading by 10 points. ohio is a must win for the romney campaign. no republican presidential candidate has ever won the white house without winning the state of ohio. cnn political director mark preston is in washington. so that's a pretty stunning poll, don't you think? >> it is, carol. it's got to be disturbing for the romney campaign. when you dig into the numbers a little bit deeper, you see that president obama has a 15 point advantage over mitt romney when it comes to women and mitt romney only has an 8 point advantage over barack obama when it comes to men. even more startling, for somebody who is trying to make this campaign all about the economy, when the question was asked who would do a better job handling the economy, barack obama comes in at 51%. mitt romney 45%. you know what, carol, he did try to make that case today. just a
